Bea Alonzo has many titles attached to her name and, finally, she can say that “Hollywood star” is one of them!
The 33-year-old actress is set to star in an upcoming Filipino Hollywood movie set during World War 2. Titled “Angel Warrior,” the film will see her as a Filipino “she-devil” named Tala whose near-death experience led her to become an underground fighter for the “poorly-equipped Filipino and American guerillas” in Panay against the Japanese occupation.

“The secret is out!! Yes, I’ll be doing a World War 2 film soon. I’ll keep you posted about the future developments,” said Bea in an Instagram post on Wednesday, September 29.
The news was first confirmed by Variety, which also announced that the film is slated for a US and worldwide release in late 2022.
“Angel Warrior” will be produced by Inspire Studios and executively produced by John Shepherd (“The Stoning of Soraya M.”) and Manny Pacquiao. The screenplay will be written by Cyrus Nowrasteh.
